Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
In order to successfully complete the programme, students must complete all course units, for a total of 180 credits. Students must therefore pass all examinations prescribed by the third-cycle study programme in Sociology, and write and successfully defend a doctoral dissertation.
